The Republic of Malta, located in the Mediterranean Sea about 100km south of Sicily, consists of the islands of Malta, Gozo, and Comino, and the tiny, uninhabited islands of Cominotto and Filfla. The total land area is 316 square km, of which the area of the largest island, Malta, is 246 square km.

The islands consist of low-lying coralline limestone plateaus surrounded by impermeable clay slopes. The highest point is 239m above sea level.

The climate is dry and temperate, with a mean temperature of 19C. Winters are moist and mild and summers are hot and dry but moderated by ocean breezes. Average annual rainfall is about 530mm.

Malta has hosted the Games of the Small States of Europe twice, in 1993 and 2003. The Mediterranean nation is currently sixth in the overall medals table, with its highest ranking of fourth place achieved at home in 2003.
